Old Police station Live Footage
Published 7 May 2011 by JT

I was lucky enough to get some footage of a set which I performed in January at the Old Police station. The work is called Obey written specially for the space. The work was live electronics and live mixing. I performed two sets Strange Beauty and Obey.
I hope you enjoy

Till all the carv’d fairies and daemons
Leer’d redly from the backgrounds of shadow.
Now redden’d my vision, and madly
I strove to peer thro’ the dense curtain

THE WOMAN WHO BREAKS MUSIC APART -POEM BY PEGGY SHUMAKER

The woman who breaks music apart
fits aural grit onto her fingertips.

Sandy, her hands play
fresh light

sifting through leaves
coiled tight--

buds/ broken/
Each

sound
attracts

the body
of breath

particles
rare and fine,

(stanza break)

pollen
voiced

by no cord,
no catgut

plucked,
no instrument known

to the human ear
until this moment

set off,
crystalline.

Stars,
arrowheads,

branches,
twins.

Moisture
sharpened

flits into the pizzicato
of morning.

(stanza break)

Snowflake,
sectored plate

hollow
column

solitary, distinct, related
in the whirl. Gathering

blue deepens
the riverbank~wild

sparks lace
our lashes~

blink
gone~

leads in dark ice,
sharp edged

breath.
Blink.

~thinking of Jo Thomas, composer
of electronic music, London
